    Not the best

    I bought these to have an extra set of headphones with me at work, for use when I need headphones with an 8mm input. I have my apple earbuds with the lightning plug but I didn't want to worry about bringing my only lighting-to-8mm adapter around with me because I knew I would lose it, so I thought I'd just buy a cheap pair of regular headphones, and cheap is what I got. First off, I recognize that these come in at a low price point, but that didn't deter me because I thought that with technology these days and the competitive tech industry, I wouldn't have to pay a lot to get a decent little pair of throwaway/spare headphones. However, these are even below my low standards I had. First off, they are quite uncomfortable. The section that fits inside your ear has this plastic pointed piece, I guess to help keep them in and secure, but they become exceedingly uncomfortable. These wrap around the exterior of your ear so I don't even know why this painful plastic piece was worked into the design. Additionally, the sound quality is pretty bad, even at this price...bad enough that I am distracted from what I am listening to, because of the poor quality. I should have just spent the money on either an extra travel adaptor for my apple earbuds or spent a little more for decent quality headphones. I'll still give them two stars because they've been twisted and thrown around over the past couple months and they still function fine.

    Sounds great but no longer designed for activity

    I've purchased a set of JVC headphones each year for likely the last 8 years. I run quite a bit (5 days a week) and leave a set in my gym bag. Ive purchased the same for my daughter who is a runner. The sound is great! The price is great! The headphones usually fail from sweat or a wire separation, hence the necessity to replace from time to time. I will say these are very durable. Like I stated earlier, I leave these in gym bag so they get handled roughly during their lifespan. I have no issues with the headphone from what I've mentioned thus far. Where the headphones are now a fail, is in their design. One headphone (the left) has a short wire, and the right has a long wire. This makes wearing the headphones a bit difficult when used for athletic activity. The former design consisted of similar length wires and a small rubber collar that could be pulled taught. When pulled taught, the wires would extend under tension from each ear to the back of the head. If the extending wire were pulled from a head turn or other, the collar mechanism would manage the tension and the headphones would stay fully placed in the ear. The new design does not include collar/tension feature, so when turning the head or simply jogging, the headphones come dislodged. Annoying! This will be the last set of long wire/short wire headphones I purchase. For further background, I own set of Jaybirds (use for competative events and or traveling, as these have charging issues), and a set of Bose qc25,

    Possibly the worst headphones I've ever bought

    Posted

    I purchased these because I needed a quick low cost replacement when my old Sony in-ear headphones were damaged after about 5+ years of regular and reliable use. I needed a pair that was both in-ear and has an ear wrap around as regular in ear headphones frequently just fall out of my ear or fail to maintain the needed seal for the full sound and I can't use them. Unfortunately, Best Buy no longer carries in-store my preferred Sony type, so I gave these a shot. They were fine and good for about 2 or 3 days, then I noticed the volume in the left ear dropped drastically (by about 80-90%). I was able to re-balance my player to mostly compensate, then a day or two later the same happened to the right side. The drivers had both been blown out, and all I could get from them was a tinny micro volume sound. I verified this was indeed a failure with the product after I got my new/replacement in-ear Sony ones and compared the two using the same player during the same playback. I did not use these under any weird or strange circumstances or excessive volume (the same as I have for years with my old Sony pair - and now the new ones). Even my generic 10 dollar emergency headphones that I got in a bargain bin worked better / right. These simply failed under normal use. Will be returning to store. This is the first time I've strayed from my usual headphone brand in 30 years. Won't make that mistake again.

    I usually have to replace my earphones every year because I use them during workouts and the sweat/moisture destroys them. Sure enough that happened the other day so I went in to Best Buy to buy some more. I decided to spend the extra money ($10 more) to purchase these active wear earbuds in the hopes they will last longer since they're meant to endure sweat. I wanted to compare them with another product so I also bought Sony's version of these headphones, both priced the same but slightly different designs. I listened to one song (the same song) with both to compare sound quality (bass, crisp, clear, etc...) and if they would fall out while walking at a fast pace. The Sony pair was hard to hear because they sit in your ear, but don't actually go into the ear canal. The JVCs were AMAZING! I listen to a lot of songs with heavy bass, and these don't disappoint. I heard the songs in a whole new light compared to my old earbuds that I thought delivered good quality. I'm sure you could get better sound quality/performance for earbuds that are $150+, but if you're looking for a product that delivers and is affordable, these JVCs are the headphones you want to buy. They come with small, medium, and large buds to suit your ear needs. I have tiny ears and usually stay away from these gummy buds because even the "small" size is usually too big for me, but these fit like a glove. I would definitely buy these again and recommend them to anybody looking for a good pair of headphones to use when exercising.

    Next best thing to Christmas tree tangled lights

    Every year I have to untangle Christmas tree lights. I don't get it. I try balling them up in different ways, but the next year they are tangled up. Not only that, but somehow over the course of the year the bulbs burn out. So a holiday tradition at my house is to sit on the floor untangling lights and trying to find the one that is burned out that makes the rest of the string go dark. What's this have to do with my ear clip-on headphones? Not much really because they have to do with hearing not seeing. I wear them at the gym so I can watch Netflix on the treadmill. The clips keep them from falling off [the insides of my ears get all slippery when I sweat]. The sound quality is good enough to hear Bruce Willis or Nicole Kidman speak in near whispers. Plus I don't have to converse with the people next to me--they can obviously see my headphones! Great for an introvert at the gym. But just like my Christmas tree lights, they get tangled up. Every morning I have to take time to unravel the cord. How do these things get tied up in knots every day? Every. Single. Day. Alas. Perhaps technology will come up with a solution one day. Until then, these are just what I was looking for at a price I could afford. Five stars

    Good sport earbuds for the price

    For the money these are great earbuds. I wear these primarily for weightlifting at the gym, however I haven't tried running with them yet. Before I bought these I was using my iPhone earbuds, but got annoyed with them as they always fall out of my ears and decided to get something that wraps around your ears. These earbuds sit comfortably in your ears and because they are lightweight, you easily forget they are wrapped around your ear. They almost have a rubbery feel to them rather than cheap plastic and they are very flexible. I think the cord design is somewhat ingenious, the right earbud cord is longer than the left, and you simply put the longer cord behind your neck (sort of like you see with bluetooth headphones). I imagine JVC designed the cord like this so they don't pull out if one side gets snagged on your clothing or an object. My only complaint on these earbuds is the sound quality. I see a lot of people praising these for good sound quality. Perhaps I have a bad pair, but I think the sound quality is pretty bad on these. It's hard to describe, but it sounds like your listening to your songs from a far distance with these. However, I wasn't expecting Bose quality sound from a pair of $15 headphones. For the price and what I was looking for, these earbuds are great.

    Decent sound / not durable

    I use headphones primarily for the gym. When my regular Bluetooth ones died after over a year of daily abuse and my back up corded ones also broke (unlucky timing) I looked for a cheap pair to last until my Bluetooth ones could be replaced. I ended up with these and was originally impressed with sound quality given their extremely inexpensive price. Unfortunately I wasn't impressed for long since after about a week, or roughly 5 uses at the gym, the right ear failed to thrive. I assume this was due to sweat but an autopsy wasn't an option since the left ear worked fine and the right ear was at about 10%. Not sure if you have ever tried listening to music in a gym with one earbud significantly louder than the other but the frustration definitely fuels any extra reps you may push for. I'm not sure if my set was a lemon but the experience was less than satisfactory. To rub dirt in my scrapes, I declined the warranty at checkout thinking the headphones would last longer than the receipt would stay in my pocket. My next pair of corded backups will not be the same.

    Great sound for affordable workout headphones

    I was shocked really. I had the previous version of the JVC sport clip-on in-ear headphones and the sound was pretty flat. I figured it was for working out and I didn't need the sound quality. Well, the previous version broke after 4 years, so I decided to go with JVC again since they are affordable and one of the few brands that have sport clip with in-ear buds. Best prices on these new ones range from $10 to $20 at Best Buy. I missed my chance to get them at $10, but I got them anyways because I had reward points to make them $10 after reward. Boy was I surprised by the sound quality. I heard on frequency ranges in songs that I normally only heard with good headphones. I almost wanted to go out and buy another pair just as a backup for the future when it will eventually die. The only thing that bugs me is the different cord length feature (left bud has a short cable while the right bud has a long cable), which allows you to wrap it around your head, so cables don't get snagged when exercising. It is useful and comfortable for cardio, but a mess to put away, which is why I'm only giving 4 stars out of 5. I'd going to buy them again if needed.
